I liked this book very much, but one of the few things I didn’t like about it was the device of making Julian a movie star. It struck me as too easy and it made Mica’s attachment to Julian seem more shallow than it was...Despite this I enjoyed Angel Falls very much for its warmth and its honest depiction of a real marriage.

Synopsis

BONUS: This edition contains an Angel Falls discussion guide and an excerpt from Kristin Hannah's Distant Shores.

When Mikaela Campbell, beloved wife and mother, falls into a coma, it is up to her husband, Liam, to hold the family together and care for their grieving, frightened children. Doctors tell him not to expect a recovery, but he believes that love can accomplish what medical science cannot. Daily he sits at her bedside, telling her stories of the precious life they have built together, hoping against hope that she will wake up. But then he discovers evidence of his wife’s secret past: a hidden first marriage to movie star Julian True.

Desperate to bring Mikaela back at any cost, Liam knows he must turn to Julian for help. But will that choice cost Liam his wife, his family, and everything he holds dear? One of Kristin Hannah’s most moving novels, Angel Falls is a poignant and unforgettable portrait of marriage and commitment, of an ordinary man who dares to risk everything in the name of love.

Yes, she’s discovered that it’s that gentle guy who stays with you through years of cramps and decorating the Christmas tree who defines what love really is. The heartfelt soap appears to be Hannah’s chosen romance niche, and she mines it skillfully.

Mikaela and Liam are sweet characters, even relentlessly good ones, so many will find them likable even as they float smoothly toward an easy conclusion.

Reviewed by Marilyn Heyman on Jul 31 2001

Angel Falls is a very well written book but it did seem that Mikaela was in a coma a bit over-long. I wanted to know what made this woman tick and what she was really all about. The obvious was to resent her feelings for the shallow Julian when she had such a loving husband.
